Gathering to pray as Impact launches as a misional family

It was fantastic to launch a missional community last Sunday: Impact. Impact is building extended  family  with young people in Ipswich that have faced challenges within their own families. It was incredibly moving to hear young people share the way that Impact had become their family, and the difference that Jesus was now making in their lives. It is an unbelievable privilege to see God at work in this way.

As a wider church family we pledged our support to stand with them, pray for them and to cheer them on. Cherie Parnell, speaking for Impact, asked us to pray

  • for more people to join the journey
  • for wisdom as all the relationships grow and develop
  • for young people to grow in their relationship with them, and with Jesus
  • for the ‘prom’ planned for September

As a wider Burlington family we pledged our prayer and support.

A missional community is an extended family of relationships on mission together. It’s a shared-life community that connects with God, is intentional about its discipleship and shares in a common mission. In this new season Burlington is seeking to launch many missional communities.  Having emphasised our gathered life we are now seeking to balance that with a much greater emphasis on being dispersed. Our attractional mission is becoming incarnational too.  More here  Find out about our other missional communities here.
